This week’s guest is Michael Bunker. I am a big fan of Michael’s Pennsylvania series, and I just downloaded Wick to my Kindle. In this episode we talked about everything from living in a “Plain” community off grid, his love of Russian literature, how a non-fiction book that he wrote about living off grid rocketed to an astounding first day Amazon rank, how Hurricane Sandy was the spark for his ‘magnum opus’, and much much more.
From Michael’s website:
Michael Bunker is a bestselling author, off-gridder, husband, and father of four children. He lives with his family in a “plain” community in Central Texas, where he reads and writes books…and occasionally tilts at windmills. He is the author of several popular and acclaimed works of dystopian sci-fi, including the WICK series, The Silo Archipelago, and the Amish/Sci-Fi thriller Pennsylvania, as well as many nonfiction works, including the bestseller Surviving Off Off-Grid. Michael was commissioned by Amazon.com through their Kindle Worlds program to write a serial in the World of Kurt Vonnegut. That book is entitled Osage Two Diamonds, and it debuted on Dec. 17, 2013. Michael was recently interviewed in a Medium.com article that will give you more background and insight into his life and works… http://bit.ly/17YbE63.
